The opening track of Size label boss Steve Angello’s sets over the past few months, “Ulysses” has the power and dexterity you expect from a release on Size. As the owner of the increasingly influential Megaton Records, Mike Hawkins becomes a bigger name in dance music, and here he teams up with Pablo Oliveros Marcus Schossow to create a bouncy bass line and long, riveting melodic builds. The Scandinavian connection is strong here with 2 Danes and 1 Swede on the track.

The good guys of Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman are finally here with a release in 2013. The duo are no stranger to big remix requests, like their Miike Snow remix and they take full advantage of the opportunity on this one. The original was a much more melodic effort from AN21 & Max Vangeli as they got ready for their album, but Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman inject their own big-room flavor to make this track relevant once again and put it right back into DJ radio shows and sets, as we enter the last few months of the year. Coming up, at some point, they have their second release on Size, “Rebel” with AN21 and many more.

Henrix has been busy touring this summer, so that has meant he’s been quiet on the release front, (if he wasn’t, well, then BT would have the answer for you). However, he has managed to find the time to come together with fellow Miami producer Adrien Mezsi, a guy who I have kept an eye for a while now, waiting for that spark to happen, and oh man did it happen. “Raverz” has been a part of Steve Angello’s sets since Tomorrowland, and you can expect that to continue well into the future. His people want it to be a mystery, but nobody’s being fooled here. Just like “Hit It”, this one is coming out on Size Records. When? Nobody knows, but for now watch the preview from Creamfields.
For all of our Electric Zoo attendees tomorrow in under 14 hours (ahhhhhh), Henrix will be playing MainStage west to start Saturday bright and early at 11:10am. So shake off the cobwebs and get there early to hear this unreleased jam, amongst other massive tunes dropped by Mr. Henriques.

Axtone has been busy towards the end of this summer. They have released the original mix of “Reverie” and “Starlight (Could You Be Mine)”, while also previewing the CLMD remix of Discopolis “Committed to Sparkle Motion” (coming on Monday) and revealing info on releases from Axwell, Otto Knows, Thomas Gold & Kryder. Michael Calfan has a strong history with remixes, taking tracks like “Shewolf” and “Momentum” and eliciting their full potential. With this one, the Frenchman keeps much of the essence of the original, while injecting vocal chants and mixes up the timing of the drop with added melodic elements. Look for more from Axtone as the label seems to only getting started as Axwell, like Steve Angello, shows life post-SHM. Your move Seb.

Shockingly, Size mainstays like AN21 & Max Vangeli, Third Party & Tim Mason will be coming to town, with Steve Angello making an appearance (presumably headlining) each night.

Tomorrowland has come and gone. It is still with all of those who were there and they would probably do anything to go back. Luckily for those who were there and those who weren’t, Tomorrowland caught it all on camera and on radio to help us relive it. Here are a few select sets that help exemplify the madness that went down in Boom. More after the jump.

So if you are reading this, the elephant from the Jumangee game did not come out and crush you. Good for you, however it means you still have to survive this being played during festival season with possibility of some roided out muscular guy going apeshit next to you and elbowing you into the next century. Problem. The first official release from Wayne & Woods since signing to Size Records, we are starting to see why they were given such a high vote of confidence by label boss Steve Angello. Henrix proves again why his percussive beats are to be reckoned with this festival season. Another track in the long line of “festival drop” tracks, look for this track to both chart well and to be played out often this summer as festival-goers appetitive for these type of tracks seems to be insatiable. Also here is some footage of Henrix from his show at Governor’s Island with Hardwell, Dyro and Audien.
